SootheAway is a continuous thermal therapy system developed by Innovative Medical Equipment, LLC (IME). It was designed by the world-renowned Plastic surgeon Dr. Bahman Guyuron. This system is a source of cooling, heating, targeted and continuous therapy that offers drug-free, soothing pain relief. It delivers immediate relief to the paining, swollen, uncomfortable or bruised areas. The system is easy to set up, lightweight and portable.
This system administers cold and heat therapy at an optimum temperature to relieve chronic and acute pain in any part of the body. It does this by circulating distilled water continuously through physician-designed, comfortable therapeutic pads. It uses a thermo-electric device to cool and heat the distilled water inside the channels of the relief pads. After the initial setup, this device becomes maintenance-free and is always ready to use when switched on.
SootheAway thermal therapy system can be used to relieve all kinds of pain in different parts of the body. This includes migraines, headaches, post-surgical pain, muscle and joint pain, abdominal cramps, backaches and eye puffiness. It can also be used to relief pain caused by insect stings, menstrual cramps, neck pain, sports injuries, TJM pain and foot aches among others.
SootheAway was originally developed for headache and migraine relief. However, as a result of patient requests other pads were developed and are still being developed for pain relief on other parts of the body. Below are products that this company deals in.
